Bubble!

Yesterday I went to visit fantastic children’s wear company Grubbies at the  Bubble children’s trade show in London. I was very excited to be getting my first glimpse of the new kerchiefs they asked me to design for next season. The last time I saw the designs was on my computer screen just before I hit send and now they are real! Here is a sneak peek:

Grubbies’ autumn/winter 2013 range features some rather special furry-on-the-inside dungerees as well as the two new kerchiefs Owl and Toadstools. I had a lot of fun designing these ones as they are based on woodland scenes (my favourite) with a lovely strong red and a mustard yellow as base colours.

Ohh Deer…

A few weeks ago I decided to enter Ohh Deer’s Pillowfight competition. The brief was to design two cushion covers to no particular theme so I decided to employ my studio demon Raimon as well as his skating friend of indeterminate species to adorn the cushions. Now I have to wait and see if anyone likes my designs!

All the competition entries are up for sale for a limited amount of time on Ohh Deer’s competition page so have a look at the designs and see if there is anything you fancy. If you’d like one of my cushions you will find Raimon here and my little skating creature here:

Grubbies are GO!

Grubbies is a rather fantastic new children’s wear company whose very first range of clothing I am proud to say features some Marion drawing!  The minds behind the dungerees asked me to design two kerchiefs for their very first season and I was most happy to oblige. We worked away on ideas based around a wild west theme and came up with “Coyote” and Wild Horses”.

I am terribly proud of them and have been enjoying wearing them far too much….

Grubbies are great, if you’d like to know a bit more about them or buy some scarves or tiny dungerees then check out their website where you can do all those things: www.grubbies.co.uk
